Great capture of the woman’s presence. Her shades seem to be popping out in this photograph too. But I feel that the blurred flowers at the left edge create a discomforting distraction on the overall view of the picture. They kind of invade this calm, mahogany, warm brown theme you had going on there.
The mesh makes the cars indistinct and without the cars this shot looks like it could have been taken in the 1960s or 70s–waiting outside on a summer evening–who is coming? A taxi? A date? a relative or friend?
ooooh, pretty lady. lovely legs, lovely decolletage, the dress fits her so well, the heels look comfortable AND chic. i’m envious of the previous commentor that watched you shoot this, sart. and i love the flowers at the right side – shots of colour in an otherwise fairly monochromatic palette, and they all reach for her, as if she is one of their own.
@Martine It’s the quality of the light. The angle, color, and brightness changes with the seasons weeks before the calendar says to. Even the color of the sky changes. Also the flowers in the stand help to tell you that summer is almost over; gladiolas don’t make it to the bodega until the end of July.
